Baby Clucks

Kim of Red Dirt Farm and Studio

Hi Ya’ll, how was your week?

This week, the snow slowly melted away – hooray!

 The frog peepers came out and are quite deafening in their song and I saw my first bat swooping and diving; surely spring is on the way.


Yesterday we added to our flock – meet our newest clucks.

4 Barred Rocks, and 2 Buff Brahama Bantams.

Father Cottage told me that growing up on the farm, his family had Barred Rocks, so I  kind of feel like I am carrying on a family tradition.


Oh my a face only a momma could love! The one on the left, was hatched February 14th, and the one on the right January 31st.   The two bantams, were hatched approximately February 7th.  Sadly one of my bantams did not make it through the night; Mr. Cottage buried it first thing this morning.



Lucy meets the new chicks.

Miss Lucy has her chicken feathers in a bunch and spent all day Saturday clucking and huffing and carrying on.  Oh my what a scene she caused.  Who knew chickens could be jealous?  Late in the afternoon, I went out to check on the new arrivals, Lucy followed me.  She began clucking and fusing up a storm as she stepped inside the coop and over to the cage where the peeps are, and one of those little chicks took a swipe at her and well, please feel free to laugh out loud.

Have a good week!

    I love the photo you closed with….it brought a big smile to my face, one that I really needed. Thank you for that. Spring is popping it’s wonderful head up around here with sunshine and warmer temperatures! Thank you, Lord! I’ve been very sick with a really bad bronchitis and being able to open the doors and windows and let all that wonderful fresh air in has been glorious. I hope the good weather continues on for both of us. Welcome to the new chicks! And Peace to your heart ❤

    Hi Kim, It is good to see your new arrivals and the video of Lucy, the last image made me smile too! I had a friend who obtained two male chickens she had such trouble with them that she had to give one away in the end! Sarah x
